The Democratic Republic of Obrania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Annalise Criona with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.975 billion Obranians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Michaic City. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The all-consuming Obranian economy, worth a remarkable 1,284 trillion Obranian złoties a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 128,816 Obranian złoties, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, the government is deliberately installing bloatware onto computers, politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental, and politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return. Crime is totally unknown. Obrania's national animal is the domestic cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Obrania is ranked 151,298th in the world and 7,646th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -17.44 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
